A checkout error at a number of Sainsbury’s stores last night resulted in the supermarket selling a specific PS3 console bundle for just 114.01 last night.
As spotted by those eagle-eyed bargain hunters on HotUKDeals, the error concerned the chain’s current 199 deal on 160GB PS3 consoles complete with two free games.
One shopper noted that if the deal was combined with two copies of EA’s FIFA 12 then both games were fully deducted from the bill, resulting in a total price of just 114.01.
As if always the way with retail errors highlighted on HotUKDeals, a number of other bargain hunters made a quick beeline to their local store and were able to pick up the deal themselves.
However, those hoping the cheat the system this morning will be disappointed – it appears that Sainsbury’s has now closed the loophole.
